Bentham's Cornel (Cornus capitata), also known as Evergreen Dogwood, Himalayan Flowering Dogwood, and Himalayan Strawberry Tree, is evergreen tree that belongs to the dogwood family (Cornaceae).

 

It is native to the low-elevation woodlands of the Himalayas in China, India, and surrounding nations and it is naturalized in parts of Australia and New Zealand. It is often grown in parks and gardens due to its ornamental value. 

 

The original botanical illustration featured on the poster was first published in "La Belgique horticole : Journal des jardins" by Charles Morren (1807-1858)  and his son Édouard Morren (1833-1886).


Charles Morren was a professor of botany at the University of Liège, a position that he held until 1854. He was also the director of the Botanic Garden in Liège.

He discovered that the vanilla flower was pollinated by the Melipone bee that only lived in Mexico and thus solved a mystery that had existed since Hernán Cortés had brought the vanilla flower to Europe. In 1836 he also discovered an artificial pollination process that was important to the vanilla industry in the French colonies.

In 1853, Morren came up with the term phenology for the studying of the seasonal cycles of plants and animals.
